Thanks Hoss. Big Green Egg owners tend to be overly sensitive and think the BGE is the end all be all. They are a great cooker but not for everyone and the Kamado Joe offers more for less in the ceramic cooker category. Komodo Kamado are refractory material cookers and in a different league.
I would say 235 degrees for 85 hours is pretty impressive and no I have no ties to KK company besides a raving fan.
